If you want to do something in Sacramento, it's best to wait for the Arena to be built. For now the downtown Sacramento scene seems to be the 20 something crowd which would be exciting and the way to go

I would not choose to live in this area. I only live here because this is the only place I can afford at this time, otherwise I'd be out of here.
The public transportation is not good because they took out the bus line on the weekends which would be great for people trying to get to the store or to events
